This incident took place a few years ago, I had no interest at all in the paranormal until this occurrence.
I was home alone, as my parents were out for the evening, and I was in the living room of our house on my laptop. My laptop is set up so that my back is to the wall. From there, I have a clear view of our kitchen.
I was browsing different websites. One of my dogs, Caspar, was curled up on the chair next to me. I heard some loud noises coming from upstairs, but ignored it, assuming that it was our other dog playing around up there. At one point, I thought I heard someone step down a few stairs and pause, but I continued to ignore it.
Suddenly, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a black outline go down the last few steps of the stairs. Usually with the lamp on, I would be able to more of anyone coming downstairs. But in the darkness, I could only make out black. At the exact same moment that I saw this, Caspar jumped up, faced the stairs, and started barking at the moving mass. I quickly turned my head towards the stairs, but only caught a glimpse of the black figure turning to the right. Caspar stayed next to me barking. He seemed to be following something with his eyes – something that was headed towards the kitchen. I could hear footsteps on the wooden floor as it approached. But, right when someone should have walked out into the kitchen, the footsteps stopped.
As soon as I got over the shock I searched the hallway and the rest of the house. No one was there. I believe I saw something that night, but I haven’t seen it since. Is it possible for just one occurrence to take place?
